Fergie's National Anthem from the NBA All-Star game will forever live in infamy.

But now it shall no longer live alone.


Fergie's version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was notable for its jumping to several different keys, odd riffs and pitch choices, rhythms that made no sense—you name it, and it was there.

To be fair, Francis Scott Key borrowed the music for his lyrics from an 18th century drinking song that touted imbibing heavily and engaging in lots of sex so...

"Fergie, hold my beer!"

Once again, the key seemed to change every measure.

Riffs were thrown in where riffs never were before. As one Twitter user stated, the "I'm Every Woman" singer seemed to have every single woman at once vying for a spot in her National Anthem.

Others are wondering whether or not Fergie and Chaka Khan conspired before the airing, giving each other tips on how to sing the music.





Others really just can't believe this happened twice at the same event.





And honestly, who was watching the game after this instead of howling on Twitter about that moment?





Magic Johnson actually praised the new rendition:


But most were of the opposite point of view.

Safe to say whoever is in charge of booking the National Anthem singers for the NBA All-Stars games may not have a job come 2021.

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
